Huawei Y6 2018 Review

We will gonna skip the Nova for now for the current most affordable Huawei device that they released this year with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor. This is our Huawei Y6 2018



In terms of UI, it is the same old story that we seen from previous Huawei smartphones that I previously reviewed. This one is a still relatively new - EMUI 8.0 compared to today's 8.2 version. The question though is the smoothness. Based on this 28 nm SoC, light and medium-loaded apps were a-ok to load as well as some multi tasking. Not to try this one on those non-game based heavy apps like the standard Facebook app

Before the rise of local counterparts, kudos to Huawei for bringing in a decent 18:9 display on this device


Even with this price segment, Huawei did not gave up on connectivity department. Almost ood enough for calls, texts, mobile data, Bluetooth, OTG and WiFi. One thing is the accuracy on the GPS. It is a bit of a miss for me especially with the number of times that I booked a TNVS ride with this. One advantage of this over the current Nova duo phones, true dual SIM tray

With the said processor, we got it at over 46,000 on Antutu. One sad thing on this device, they sacrificed on only 4 sensors on this phone so no gyro sensor to expect on this phone




On battery, it depends. For a 28 nm SoC processor with 3,000 mAh battery, having it at 10 hours and 15 minutes on video battery rundown test is a-ok but to complete with other competitors with only Php 1,000 difference but a better 14 nm processor/s, this is not a good thing. Using it as a daily driver in heavy usage with 5 1/2 hours of screen on time, 

On camera samples, both shooters have f/2.2 aperture supplied on this device. On rear camera pics, it was kind of a mixed bag for me. Sometimes it will produce photos with good color accuracy, sometimes not. As expected, this phone cannot survive on low light and mixed lighting environments. Selfies with proper lighting is decent for my taste

Since it had an introduction last March, Huawei Mobile PH still sticking on it on pricing at Php 5,990 which for August 2018 it is not that good enough considering that for only an additional Php 1,000, you will be given by more power and battery-efficient phones from OPPO A3s and the 2 GB RAM version of OPPO A83 with Mediatek MT6763 octa-core processor. From the A83, I think this one is a more steady shooter. Y6 2018's strengths though is the display and connectivity. I will gonna give 3 out of 5 for the Huawei Y6 2018
